London-based Arrival (www.arrival.com
), has revealed a zero-emission bus that is designed to transform the public transport industry at a time when it is facing many challenges in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic which has highlighted just how essential public transport is to communities around the world.
Kwame Nyanning, Arrival chief of experience, said: “ Arrival’s core focus is to make your every-day experience radically better, whether that is your daily journey on an Arrival Bus, or through your work as a driver delivering parcels from an Arrival Van. We are working with cities to make every touchpoint within the urban transportation ecosystem not only better, but also more equitable and sustainable.”
Ben Jardine, chief of product for Arrival Bus, said: “We are very excited to bring the Arrival Bus to markets around the world and make the passenger experience of bus travel a positive one. By working in partnership with businesses to develop the entire ecosystem around our vehicles, we are supporting their goals of making public transport appealing while achieving carbon neutrality.”
The company is also developing cars for sharing, taxis, buses, delivery robots, charging stations, Microfactories and digital services that enable ‘best in class’ public transport without the need for subsidies.
The Arrival Bus will be produced in local Microfactories which are designed to be capable of assembling all vehicles from Arrival's portfolio. These Microfactories support the creation of market-specific products and will regenerate regional economies through the use of local supply chains, retention of talent and payment of local taxes.
